Sick Pets Get the Care They Need

At Rutherford Veterinary Hospital, our doctors and staff genuinely care, going above and beyond to treat each furry member of your family as our own. Nothing could demonstrate this more accurately than when your pet is sick and in need of medical care. Our team has compassion and the knowledge to get your pet back with you as soon as possible.

Services Offered for Sick Pets

Like you, we hope your four-legged companion never gets sick. However, if they do, we are here to help. Rest assured, your pet will get the best possible care and treatment available, and we’ll work with you to find the best solutions. Located near downtown in East Dallas, we offer internal medicine, full diagnostic services, major and minor surgical services and much more. Our fully equipped, state-of-the-art ICU allows for a variety of in-house treatments, including intravenous fluid therapy to correct dehydration and electrolyte deficiencies, intravenous antibiotic and pain medications, an enclosed oxygen tent and professional monitoring. While we are not a 24-hour facility, arrangements can be made for overnight supervision.

Diseases requiring the care of a veterinary professional include:

  • Kidney disease
  • Pancreatitis
  • Parasitic diseases
  • Diabetes
  • Pneumonia
  • Parvovirus
  • Heartworm
  • And much more…

Other care options:

We have a fully operational isolation room with advanced filtration so pets contagious to others receive the same level of treatment as ICU patients. If intensive care is needed, we work closely with MedVet emergency hospitals that can accommodate this need. For pets requiring further evaluation, we have wonderful relationships with several of Dallas’s top specialists to assure those needs are met quickly.
